Flower Show Logo

We are excited to be taking part in this year’s Chicago Flower & Garden Show! We will be setting up shop in booth number 627. If you get a chance, stop by and say hello. We’ll be showing off the app and helping people find plants that will work for them. Also… if you come by at just the right time, we might have a cool gift if you show us that you’ve downloaded the app!

Chicago Flower and Garden Show,"Evening in Bloom' at Navy Pier

The show runs from Saturday, March 14th to Sunday March 22nd on Navy Pier in Chicago. We’ll be there EVERY DAY. However, if you have the luxury to pick a time to come to the show, you should definitely come down on Friday afternoon. On Friday, March 20th at 5pm we will be speaking about the future of “gardening” in our presentation: It’s a Garden Revolution.

At 11:15am we will be talking about technology in the garden. This presentation is called GrowIt! – The Garden-Tech Revolution Starts Now!

App Updates

What’s new? We’re taking GrowIt! interactions to the next level.

- Help someone out! Now, if someone has a plant picture, but doesn’t know the name, you can help them out by suggesting a name for the plant. Become the plant genius in your area!!! Plants that need suggestions will have a “Help Identify” tag on them.


- Is someone talking about your plants? Now you’ll be able to tell! We’ve added various notifications to the app so that when someone comments on your photo you’ll be notified. We’ll also notify you if your pictures become really popular and when someone has identified plants for you on the app!
